Fighting sports star Nate Diaz won’t face criminal repercussions for an April street fight on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Diaz was caught on tape as he was choking an antagonist, later identified as amateur MMA fighter Rodney Peterson Jr, unconscious with a standing guillotine.

The former UFC fighter’s representative, Zach Rosenfield, issued the following statement on Monday:

“Today, the Orleans Parish District Attorney informed us they will not be pursuing a case against Nate Diaz.

“Since Rodney Peterson sought out to fight Nate on Bourbon Street, we have maintained Nate’s actions were 100% in self defense. It was clear on video, clear in pictures and clear from the multiple other videos Rodney posted before and after.

“Nate has a right to defend himself against those who want to make a name for themselves and did so. “We appreciate the Orleans Parish District Attorney taking the time to review all aspects of this case and their decision to not proceed with it.”
